Placement | Admissions Testing

As an international school, we welcome students from different school systems. When admitting students, we decide their grade level placement with care. We take into consideration previous schooling and very importantly their age. This is so that students will belong to a grade where they are able to learn alongside peers not only academically, but also socially and emotionally – not just at the time of enrolment, but in the years to come. Information on our grade level placement is available through the online application process.

Personal interviews may be scheduled with each family and student before a decision on acceptance into the FIS is made. The decision on acceptance is a FIS management decision.

Admission and/or placement assessments may be required to confirm acceptance and/or grade placement.

Any non-native English speaking student applying for a place in Grades 9 to 11 will need to send current scores from a TOEFL or IELTS English Language Assessment with their application. Testing locations and dates can be found on the websites: and

Confirmation of Admission

Before the end of June you will be informed that:

  • Admission has been granted
  • Admission has been denied
  • Admission has been granted but, due to class size restrictions, your child has been placed in a waiting pool.

Mid-year entry is possible on a space available basis. Families wishing to enroll their children mid-year should follow the process as outlined above, and will be contacted directly once a decision on admission has been made.

In general, any student coming from a southern hemisphere school and joining the FIS at the beginning of spring term or later shall finish the remaining school year at the same grade level they have just finished.

Trial | Probationary Period

All students admitted into the school are accepted on a six month probationary period during which the FIS has the right to revoke admission should a student not be meeting the academic and behavioral requirements of the school.
